I'm on my third tube of this product. It provides a sheer wash of color and plenty of moisture without being sticky or waxy. This shade (honeysuckle) is what I would consider to be in the nude color family. It's versatile and I've used it alone as a balm as well as with nude lipliner in place of lipstick or gloss on casual days. Hope they never discontinue this product!
I've been on the lookout for a good tinted lip balm for a long time. Because I am still a student, I like lip balms that are in the chapstick shape rather than held in a lipstick form. Burt's Bees has always been a favorite of mine, so I decided to give their tinted lip balms a try after seeing some swatches on various blogs.
I picked up honeysuckle because of the natural pinkness; I wanted a 'my lips but better' shade. The moment I set eyes on the product, I was taken aback: there's no way the lip balm is that big. And I was right. The lip balm is encased in layers of packaging, and the actual product is around the size as a normal lip balm.
My lips are rather pigmented, yet honeysuckle was still able to enhance my natural lip color. The moisturizing properties were also very effective, and it always left my lips feeling smooth and refreshed. The only pet peeve I have about this product is the waxy feeling it leaves after application, as well as the staying power. However, for a tinted lip balm, it's not bad, and I would love to try the other colors in the future!
I saw this at Whole Foods, but was hesitant to buy it becuase it seems expensive for a 'chapstick'. luckily I tried it cause I love it! firstly, i wear chap stick all the time. PERFORMANCE: i like this lip balm because it feels really nice and does a decent job moisturizing my dry lips. FEEL: it does have a little bit of a waxy coat (similar to applying warm chapstick) feel, but I dont mind it. I find that other lip treatment doesnt feel a bit waxy, it doesnt 'coat' the lips and doesnt moisten. COLOR: i have tan skin and most 'peachy or rosy ' lip colours look 'orange' on me. Honeysuckle looks peach in the tube, but it's very sheer and just lightens my natural lip colour with a little gloss. I saw some reviews on youtube where the gurls wear this to tone done the shade of their lipstick OR to prime their lios for matte lipsticks that might otherwise dry their lios. I will definitely try it! PACKAGING: it's small just like a regular chapstick so it's convenient to carry around everywhere.
This feels smooth but its very drying and makes my lips peel. The color "tint" is hardly there its basically sheer. I don't like the peppermint flavor. I would have prefered honeysuckle or unflavored. Disapointing really.
Love this lip balm! Great color, not sticky and no weird taste. Would absolutely buy again. Do wish it had SPF but I guess you can't have everything - still my HG in lip balms.
Colour? There is absolutely none. Ppl who are saying there is- wow. Srsly? There is probably a very delicate, faint tint if ur lips were white, but for normal pinky or slightly pigmented lips? U can't tell. Anyway my lips get dry pretty fast if i use it, under that waxy layer, so i think this is basically useless
So I rarely ever buy expensive lip balms like Burt's Bees, but I included it in a gift for my sister-in-law, and she raved about it, so I caved in. I really like this because I have chronically chapped lips in the winter, and they become this bright red/pink lip color that looks weird with my paler winter skin tone. So this color works perfectly on top, it seems to neutralize the color and gives off a nice slightly pinkish nude color. I shy away from lipsticks and lip glosses in the winter because they always seem to accentuate the chapped-ness and the shine draws even more attention to it. So this softens my lips while also adding some subtle color. It doesn't do an especially good job at moisturizing, I usually slather on another lip balm before it (Blistex deep conditioning treatment), but it melts right in. If I find another tinted lip balm of a similar shade, I'll probably ditch this, but it works well for now!
Essence Creamy Nude lipstick is like a dupe for this, for like 1/4 the cost & moisturizes the same!! I'm a nude lips only kinda girl; so this fits the bill exactly.Its a soft beige nude, that doesn't wash me out (NW20) but I must say this isn't too unique of a shade. I like to pull this out when I'm trying to look like a natural, polished chic in public. I don't like to appear as if I put effort in it; so I'll use it up happily. I just wouldn't recommend this to girls who already have a collection of nudes.
I wanted a natural look, something that looks like you tried, but not really. This light, sheer, tan color provides a slightly more nude lip look over my natural lip color. It provides moisture, not shine, and is definitely a no-mirror application. Actually, should you go a little over, it serves to make your lips look a little fuller. The wax is smooth, and stays on.
I would have given this 5 stars, but the additional packaging is an unnecessary extra cost. While it's imperative to have some sort of hygiene seal when purchasing cosmetics, this could have been accomplished much more cheaply by using a simple plastic seal. I know we may pay more for a 100% natural product, but Burt's Bees doesn't need to pile on even more cost with unnecessary packaging.
I am a big fan of Burt's Bees tinted lipbalms. They are incredibly smooth, very moisturizing, and provide just a hint of color.
I would describe Honeysuckle as a light beige w/ a slight orange undertone. It works great for me as I have pigmented lips w/ very cool, almost purple undertone. The Honeysuckle tones down my lips and shows up as a really pretty pinky nude color.
